What is the measurement of the city?


"And the city lies foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the
reed, twelve thousand furlongs." Verse 16.
NOTE - The measure around it, as the words length and breadth imply, and as was the early
custom of measuring cities, is 12,000 furlongs. This is equal to 1,500 miles, 375 miles on each side,
making a perfect square. The area of this city is therefore 140,625 square miles, or 90,000,000 acres, or
3,920,400,000,000 square feet. Allowing 100 square feet to each person, or a space ten feet square, the city
would hold 39,204,000,000 persons, or twenty times the present population of the globe.
